What if I told you I had the answer to everything? Would you believe me? Probably not, but it’s true. No, you won’t find me on the boardwalk this summer, offering readings based on my psychic powers. Though now that you mention it…
If I set up my table and chairs near the Thrasher’s Fries and Kohr Brothers frozen custard stands, given the long lines my business would be fast and furious. But then again, so might my weight gain, so maybe it’s not such a good idea.
Sorry, I got distracted by carbs and dairy. Old habits die hard. <wink>
When I say I have all the answers, I’m not mounting my high horse. You have the answers too, so saddle up! We won’t even have to go far to find them. Know why? Because the answers are within!
If you’ve ever spent time stressing, venting, analyzing, worrying, figuring, or thinking in an attempt to sort out your confusion, you’ve probably realized these things rarely make it better. For me, add crying and overeating to the list and you’ll get a sense for how I used to handle myself.
Of course, I had heard all those expressions about listening to your gut and following your heart, but I didn’t want to! Maybe I didn’t want to face the truth, or perhaps it was because I was impatient and wanted an answer right away. (For those of you into astrology, yes, my sun sign is Aries.)
Finally, I realized nothing would change until I did, and I learned not to get so intense and emotional. Well, most of the time. (Again, I’m an Aries. <wink>)
Here’s how you can get past that state of confusion in two minutes:
Until you hear an answer, take a cue from Benjamin Franklin, who said, “When in doubt, don’t.” Just stay open and let things unfold naturally. Try to stay in a peaceful state, which will make you more receptive to your inner voice and better able to see the signs that will
guide you to the right path.
When you do start to feel a prompting or have the urge to act, go back and do the two-minute check-in described above. Ask for confirmation that your instinct is the “right” thing to do.
You’ll know whether you’re on the right path by gauging your feelings. Do you feel light? Calm? At peace? Awesome! Then take action. Do you feel heavy? Weighted down? Still unsure? Then remember what Ben Franklin said and just chill out.
Waiting can be tough, since we have a tendency to want to know the future and be in control. We don’t want to feel uncomfortable, and we want immediate gratification. I’m telling you though, the calm and confidence you will gain just from listening to yourself can be totally
Being unclear doesn’t feel good, and I want you to feel good! The next time you feel unsure about something, would you please try this process? You’ve got nothing but confusion to lose!
